Village life

This week was our final week with Pavla we have had such a good time working with her. We were sad she isn’t coming back again. This week we thought about life in a Mesolithic village. We started by practicing our spear fishing. Then we looked at all the aspects that a village needs. Such as a fire, homes, tool making, weapon making, cooking area and protection of the village. We talked about how we could protect the village from bears and how at all times there was a lookout on top of the hill. We developed horn sounds, one for danger and one for food to hunt. At the sound of the hunting horn we started our hunt for the deer. We went through the processes making sure we were very quiet not to scare the prey away. We acted out the hunt. We put mud on our faces, picked up our spears and set off. When we finally caught the deer we shared it out amongst the village and performed our thankful rituals. After all of the acting we set about creating cave paintings of our hunt, just how people in the Stone Age would have done. here are the pictures of our final week.
